Voigtlander has announced “NOKTON Vintage Line 28mm f/1.5 Aspherical ($999) —a compact and fast lens for the Leica M-mount. The lens comes in two versions: type I, the lighter version with an aluminum exterior, and type II, which has a brass exterior (and a focusing knob).

Joining the Voigtlander COLORSKOPAR 28mm f/2.8 and the Voigtlander ULTRON 28mm f/2.8, the NOKTON 28mm f/1.5 is the third 28mm lens Voigtlander is currently selling. And, while all three are good lenses, each with a different purpose, I expect the NOKTON to become the most popular one of the trio.

People like fast lenses, not just due to low light performance but also due to their beautiful bokeh. The Nokton, being an f/1.5 lens, delivers all of that in a compact 45mm package. And, in typical Voigtlander fashion, that “package” is stylish too, with its beautiful vintage look being a perfect fit for Leica-M cameras.
